Berkshire cricket captain and former Reading goalkeeper Dan Lincoln has departed National League Dorking Wanderers.

The 28-year-old spent four years coming through the ranks with the Royals, never making a first-team appearance but having four loan spells.

Spending the last decade in the non-league pyramid, he joined Dorking in 2021 and the internet sensations- known for their YouTube series 'Bunch of Amateurs'- have now reached the fifth tier.

One of the best cricketers this county has produced, Lincoln captains Berkshire and plays for Wargrave in Home Counties Premier Cricket League.

Dorking manager, Marc White, commented: “I've become renowned for not personally liking many goalkeepers over the years (!), but Dan really grew on me. What probably helped was his will to win and professional mindset that he brought to the club, given his cricketing background.

"I don’t think we would have got promoted in 2022 without Dan playing and I also feel like he was a significant contributor with regards to staying in our new division last season. Dan has become really popular with myself, the management team and the fans - it’s been particularly great to see him excel in the National League through this last term. An extremely popular character around the club, I am very sad to see him go.”

Former Reading midfielder Aaron Kuhl also plays for Dorking after leaving Slough Town last season.
